They cleaned up well and heck of deal compared to spending nearly $60 on a pair of campy bottles from eBay.

Found this pic in my Flickr archives today - totally forgot about it. Alas, I no longer own this one but it was a blast when I did!

Repainted/decaled Super Prestige, originally silver/gray "marble" finish. I ran it with the ITM aerobar setup as the frame was a wee bit too small. That's a Corima carbon seatpost. Most everything else is Campy 50th Anniversary.

It would be worth your time.

I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the shop.

Non-Air fork, absence of chrome (though it could have been painted over), Columbus dropouts and lack of a front derailleur hanger have me leaning towards a Tre-tubi.

if the sticker is correct and itís Columbus Cromor, then itís mid 1990s not early 1980s:

Sorry,I don't see any Cromor decals on the frame to which I was referring. BTW, if there were Cromor decals (and they were OEM), it could be as early as 1987. That was the year that Columbus renamed their Matrix tubeset to Cromor as a result of a Trek lawsuit for infringing on their trademarked Matrix rims.

Iím pretty sure the decals are reproduction and may not even be correct. Here are a few more pictures.

Ok, sorry Iím viewing on a mobile and thought I saw a Cromor sticker.

if you email the frame number to Barbara at Tommasini she can usually tell you the date of build to the nearest month.

I emailed Barb a week ago, so waiting on response. The BB has no numbers but a very slight V stamped in there.

New happy Tommasini owner


Hello all.
I got this beautiful bike few weeks ago, I cleaned up and did some TLC.
Looks gorgeous with original paint (aside some tiny chrome pitting up on the rear triangle), overall great bike.
I love this bike! I could not wait to own a Tommasini, and the components are in great shape too (Campy 8 speed Chorus).
This should be around 1990/91 build for the 15th Anniversary.
One thing I want to share with you, is that this bike compare to my other vintage (SLX/SL Tubing with 1980's Campy Victory) is mush heavier (1.5 pound circa)
I have a 1986 Pinarello Treviso and a 1990's Zullo both with Campy Victory and both are lighter than the Tommasini with the same size 56.
Can it be that 8 speed Chorus group is heavier then 6 speed Victory? The frame set is a SLX Super Prestige so shouldn't be lighter then SL frame set? Any thought?
Sal

In case anyone is wondering, this is the response I got back from Barbara:

The frame is custom production made for a shop in Pistoia, it is half way between a Racing and a Prestige, built in mid 80's

Regards,

Barbara

Sal that is a beautiful Tommasini you have there.

Needs a different saddle..those endzone saddles tend to lose their padding strength quick.
